This is one of the best shows on the archive!
Mexicali Blues is definitely NOT missing on this recording. The 2 Passenger error is kind of a treat. This version of passenger will steal your face. If you are a simple listener, 2 times through this version will not bother you, I swear!
Both sets are just splendid! The recording is so beautiful you will weep, I swear!
The interplay between Jerry and Bob must be heard. From Half-Step through Shakedown--they are in lock step. You can just really hear the difference between an "on" night and the "off" listening to a show like this. Brent is just bringin' it less than 90 days after taking his seat at the keys. Fun, fun, fun!! Sugaree fans---STOP and LISTEN! A second set super version awaits along w/ a magical Terrapin and poignant and powerful Playin'. The backwater of set 2 goes from a placid pond to class 5 whitewater.....

Great Recording but misslabeled
This is a great recording of a great show, however this is missing Mexicali Blues, and there are two copies of Passenger. Everything from Mexicali to Brown Eyed Women is mislabeled. Mexicali should be changed to Peggy-O, and continue the pattern. the tracks labeled as BEW And Passenger are Identical.

This is a wonderful recording of a fine show. Please do yourselves a favor and at least check out the Half-Step. Garcia's solos are focused and inspired. I love the comment from a guy close to the mics - "this is one helluva sound system!" This recording puts you RIGHT THERE, nestled amongst fellow heads feeding off the band's positive energy.
